Luminar Neo 1.13.0: Studio Light feature, Blur Tool, and more

General Updates

We strive to make Luminar Neo more helpful and enjoyable for you with each update, so let's explore the improvements included in Luminar Neo 1.13.0. 


Exclusively for Luminar Neo Subscribers and the 2023/24 Creative Journey Pass owners: 

Studio Light is now available in Luminar Neo! Enhance portraits by faithfully replicating lighting effects usually achieved with expensive technical equipment in the studio. Breathe new life into older photos by adding dimension, simulate warm sunlight as it spills through window shades behind your subject, add textures and light patterns to your portraits, and so much more.


All Luminar Neo owners:

Discover a new feature in this update — the Blur Tool. Easily add three types of blur to your photos, including Gaussian, Motion, and Twisted. You can also adjust the amount, angle, and position of the blur effect, and use masking to apply it to a specific area of the photo.

Luminar Neo users who own the Panorama Stitching Extension can now access it directly within Lightroom with the new Lightroom Plugin. Plus, it’s more convenient to use, as Autocrop is applied automatically, we’ve specified the maximum number of photos that can be added (100 photos!), and added other small improvements to the user interface.

We’ve also added new camera support: Canon EOS M50 Mark II, Fujifilm X-S20, Leica Q3, Nikon Z8 (lossless compression only), Sony ZV-1 Mark II.

On top of that, we’ve optimized the Toning tool by removing the Balance slider from the advanced section and placing it directly within the tool to avoid extra steps, and we expanded the capabilities for the Magic Light tool by adding the brush feature.

Luminar Neo 1.13.0 also provides a steadier and more responsive experience, as we’ve caught and fixed a number of bugs. Install this update today to take advantage of these new features and performance improvements. 


MacOS

Bug fixes:

  • Upscaling photos by 4x and 6x in the Upscale Extension is now faster, and uses less RAM
  • Smoother experience when using Portrait Background Removal with Mask AI
  • More accurate results with video trim controls in Panorama Stitching Extension
  • Faster image previews in the Catalog without “pulsing tiles” 
  • Better export of panoramas on MacOS Mojave (10.14)
  • Better experience with Extensions, even when the path to the images is lost

Windows

Bug fixes:

  • Smoother application launch
  • Better export of panoramas 
  • More accurate results with video trim controls in Panorama Stitching Extension
  • Better experience when applying AI tools 
  • Better experience with Extensions, even when the path to the images is lost
  • Better workflow with Layers
